Accuweigh ’s Brisbane branch recently commissioned multiple platform scales for MJS Underlays’ manufacturing plant at Yatala in Queensland. The platform scales are used to weigh basic ingredients used in the underlay manufacturing processes.
Two sets of platform scales are used for weighing resins and glues, which are used to bind the foam into a single sheet of underlay. The third platform scale is suspended inside a large hopper and weighs the foam chips to ensure that the correct density of foam is achieved for each type of underlay.
All three platform scales are fitted with Rinstrum 2100 digital weight indicators featuring large backlit digits to allow the operators to see the indicated weight of the platform scales from reasonable distances.
